About

Ben Greene, Wine & Greene

For nearly twenty years I worked in the London wine trade, selling (and sometimes drinking) the world's best wines. In 2018 I moved to the south Devon countryside and started Wine & Greene. We are a modern independent wine merchant all about authentic, interesting, artisan wine

The placing of a son in a trade or profession is an anxious question with most parents; but I would urge upon all not to make a wine merchant of him T.G. Shaw, wine merchant, 1863

A real wine-merchant's role, I have always believed, is to do a thorough sorting-out job ... that is, as to quality, character and value for money.Hugh Johnson, 1990

We sell online to anywhere in the UK, but our home is in the South Devon town of Totnes, where you'll find our shop at the top of the High Street.

We stock a carefully chosen selection of things we love to drink. We champion lesser-known European regions and indigenous grape varieties (alongside the classics). We are specialists in the wines of Greece.

We also sell a selection of craft beer from a handful of the UK's best breweries.
